12 Days of Christmas 2022
Holiday shopping can be stressful, especially if you only have a couple of weeks to complete it (we see you, last-minute shoppers). But stress is definitely not the ideal spirit in which to spend your holiday season! That’s why every year, our Chef David and our team strives to take the chore out of your Christmas shopping by creating a guide to the best gifts on the Alabama Gulf Coast and beyond. Just like the classic carol, our 12 Days of Christmas list counts down to Christmas with 12 inspiring gift ideas for the people in your life. And because many of our top gifts are available at our stores, crossing off your Christmas list is as easy and enjoyable as popping into The Pantry at The Wharf or cruising by The Liquor Cabinet. You may even find a tempting way to treat yourself!
Give the top foodie on your list the gift of fine dining without fuss through a personal chef experience with Chef David Pan. We’ll treat them to an evening of culinary delights in the comfort of their home. Good friends, great food, and easy entertainment – there’s no finer gift on the Gulf Coast!
The gift of choice is as good as it gets, and they’ll have plenty of premium products to browse at The Pantry at The Wharf. With a $250 gift card in hand, they can choose from our curated collection of specialty items and quality provisions to soothe their every craving. They can even treat themselves to an easy and delicious meal from our handmade selections. And when they’re ready to get in a festive spirit, they can pop over to The Liquor Cabinet to purchase from our line of top-shelf liquors and barware.
Treat your saltiest friend to their favorite flavor with The Pantry’s curated selection of products from Jacobsen Salt Co. As one of the leading salt makers in the country, their variety of pure and infused sea salts and other pantry staples are a tasty and luxurious addition to any kitchen. Do they have a sweet side, too? Throw in a decadent salted candy to match their complex style. What’s even better? Jacobsen Salt Co. is available at The Pantry.
A quality oyster knife is a must-have tool for those who love the freshest oyster flavor. This quality version from Toadfish Outfitters is sharp, stylish, and capable of shucking the thickest-shelled oysters with easy precision. The stainless-steel blade is durable and rust-resistant, with an ergonomic handle to make shucking safe and simple. And at just $28.50, it won’t break the bank or those gorgeous Gulf Coast shells.
Bragard is known for premium quality, and their towels are no exception. Their mineur kitchen towels are made with a luxurious cotton-linen blend and feature a stylish blue and red design for a pop of cheerful color. Buy a set of 12 for $77.95.
A utensil that blends form and function is a guaranteed way to charm your favorite chef. Town Cutler’s offset palette knife has a broad, flexible blade and a linear handle shape secured with loveless bolts for lasting structure and durability. A truly multi-use tool, it can carry your chef from prep to plating with endless culinary applications.
This culture-focused cookbook is a step-by-step guide to all things Cajun cuisine, from making a roux and peeling a crawfish to creating your best batch of authentic Cajun gumbo. Far more than a simple kitchen cookbook, Melissa Martin highlights the rich and complex culture that feeds the southern bayou with photographs, stories, practical tips, and, of course, timeless Cajun recipes.
Add some spice to their holiday season with a flavorful sauce from Southern Chili Lab. This locally based hot sauce company uses careful fermentation to create a distinct sour base that characterizes their small-batch sauces. The Pantry at The Wharf carries their signature hot sauce as well as their Chili Crisp, a chili-based condiment suspended in peanut oil for a crisp and spicy heat.
You can’t go wrong with a good pair of kitchen scissors! True to their name, Nevanon’s all-purpose scissors slice through paper, cloth, adhesive tape, and sticky surfaces with silky smooth precision. The sleek black design features an ultra-sharp stainless-steel blade and a special Teflon coating that reduces gummy residue.
Is their cooking apron looking a little worse for the wear? BA Craftmade Aprons can help you replace their threadbare cover with a stylish, quality apron that’s designed with chefs in mind. Their craft-made aprons feature premium fabrics that are comfortable to wear, easy to clean, and durable for years. They’re also affordable – many are under $100 – and come in a variety of fashionable designs to show off their unique style.
We all know that chef that’s been using the same sheet pan for decades or more (and we bet they store it in their oven warming drawer.) You can help them upgrade this essential cooking tool with a three-piece set of quality sheet pans from Hestan. Their half sheet pans are crafted from triple-bonded clad stainless steel with a responsive aluminum core that evenly emits heat for beautiful baking and roasting.
This charming gift set is a thoughtful way to share some holiday spirit with your most intoxicating friends. It includes a single serving of El Guapo’s signature mixers – Mojito, Salted Paloma, Hurricane, Lemon Drop, and Bloody Mary – along with printed recipes to make their classic cocktails (spoiler: you just add ice and your favorite liquor). Stop by The Liquor Cabinet to purchase the set and pair it with their favorite top-shelf brand for a truly spirited gift!
